    A Loss for the Whole World

    You probably know that South Africa's Desmond Tutu, who died today at the age of 90, was a driving force behind the squelching of apartheid, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and a worldwide champion for human rights.

    You might not know that those rights included ours. 

    "I would not worship a God who is homophobic," said the former Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town in 2013. "I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say, 'Sorry, I would much rather go to the other place.'"

    It could be he and St. Peter are haggling right now over Tutu's travel arrangements.

    Christmas 2021

    It's Christmas day. Santa brought me a cold.

    This was already a less than cheery holiday for me. In the last five months, my mother passed away, my divorce became final and my brother-in-law received a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer.

    Add in the brand spanking new COVID variant, inflation and my exasperation over the willingness of so many of my countrymen to continue believing in the lies of Hey Mr. Tangerine Man, and, well, let's just say I've been taking to heart those enlightened messages about how happiness at Christmas isn't required.

    I've aimed to leaven my Scrooge-like impulses with a little whimsy. My mask of choice these last weeks features Snow Miser and Heat Miser, two flashy characters from the 1974 Rankin/Bass Christmas special "The Year Without a Santa Claus."

    Unfortunately, so few people have recognized the images that I feel like a 500-year-old. With a cold.

    Today I'm wearing socks I got as a gift last year. They're purple with snowflakes—and rainbow stripes and unicorns.

    It's a lonely Christmas, but thank goodness I have queer whimsy to help see me through.

    Good Thing He's a Diplomat

    The U.S. Senate has confirmed Christopher Lamora to be the ambassador to Cameroon.

    Lamora is openly gay.  Homosexuality is illegal in Cameroon.

    And you think your job is tough.

    Seasonal Sins

    Because I have entirely too much German blood in me, I view every holiday as an excuse to gorge on European chocolate.

    Which is why I bought a box of Lindt chocolates at Costco yesterday. After checking out, I looked at my receipt. This collection of mini chocolate Santas and truffles in a uniquely shaped container I'd just purchased? Costco calls it a "Hex Box."

    I'm a lesbian buying witchcraft supplies. At Christmas.

    I bet I'm the talk of Southern Baptists from Bisbee, Ariz., to Sopchoppy, Fla.

    This Week's Quote

    I’m one of the Jewish people who celebrates the high holy days. And by high holy days I mean my uncle smoked pot at Hanukkah. And by smoked pot at Hanukkah, I mean he was high for eight days and eight nights.

    Aftermath

    The record-breaking tornadoes that ripped through the South and Midwest last week caused unprecedented and tragic devastation.

    Now America is left with urgent questions. How high will the death toll go? Did climate change play a role? When will gays be blamed?

    The Fruitful Formula

    Who got to tell Colorado State University's Trey McBride last week that he'd been named college football's best tight end?

    His moms.

    Kate and Jen raised five kids in Fort Morgan, Colo. Trey, who just won the Mackey Award, has a twin brother who was a college wrestler, and an older brother who played defensive lineman at CSU.  

    "We’ve been told that we must've had 'super sperm' or whatever,” Kate said. "(That) we chemically engineered them because there’s no way that one family can have all these great athletes."

    Let Russia dope their athletes. From now on here in the U.S., our idea of winning chemistry will be lesbian moms and sperm donors.
